BEVERLY, Mass. (AP) - Officials say a man is in custody following the shooting death of a 21-year-old man in a Beverly home.

Essex County District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett says 19-year-old Justice Galarza, of Beverly, turned himself in to Salem police following the Saturday night shooting. He will be arraigned Monday in Salem District Court.

Blodgett’s office says the shooting happened sometime before 10:30 p.m. Saturday at a residence on Ropes Street. Officers responding found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. He was taken to Beverly Hospital where he died.

Officials have so far declined to identify the victim. But Blodgett’s office says the victim and suspect knew each other.

It could not be immediately determined if Galarza has a lawyer who could comment.
